Pink Taco to Open in Century City
Eater LA clues us into something pretty hilarious-- Pink Taco, a gussied-up Mexican resto from the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas is coming to the Century City Mall. Owner Harry Morton had this to say "The building will be pink and more risque in the decor. It's going to be a little rawer. It's a little funkier. We really focused on staying true to the East LA vibe." Apparently the East LA vibe is now brought to you in a pink theme restaurant in the Century City Mall with $10 tacos and Cadillac Margaritas.
